Estes são os 3 cables da embaixada americana referinos no artigo do Telegraph:

- http://www.cablegatesearch.net/cable.php?id=89BEIJING15407

- http://www.cablegatesearch.net/cable.php?id=89BEIJING15411

Lendo-os náo vejo nada de onde se possa concluir que não houve nenhum massacre em Tienanmen.

Sobretudo o cable 154111 diz que:

"WE HAVE NO ACCURATE COUNT OF DEAD AND WOUNDED, BUT CASUALTIES NO DOUBT WILL BE HIGH (##) "

"THERE HAS REPORTEDLY BEEN INDISCRIMINATE GUNFIRE BY THE TROOPS ON THE SQUARE. WE CAN HEAR GUNFIRE FROM THE EMBASSY AND JIANGUOMENWAI DIPLOMATIC COMPOUND."

"ACCORDING TO UNCONFIRMED REPORTS, SEVENTY HAVE BEEN KILLED AND LARGE NUMBERS WOUNDED. (...) FINAL NUMBERS OF DEAD AND WOUNDED COULD BE VERY HIGH, BASED ON EYEWITNESS ACCOUNTS OF THE ARMY'S ACTION THUS FAR. "

"POLOFFS AT THE BEIJING HOTEL REPORTED THAT TROOPS ARE PUSHING A LARGE CROWD OF DEMONSTRATORS EAST ON CHANGANJIE. ALTHOUGH THESE TROOPS APPEAR NOT TO BE FIRING ON THE CROWD, POLOFFS REPORT FIRING BEHIND THE TROOPS COMING FROM THE SQUARE."

O cable referindo o diplomata chileno:

"ALTHOUGH HE DID NOT ACTUALLY WITNESS ANY LARGE SCALE SHOOTINGS ON THE SQUARE PROPER, GALLO SAW MANY CASUALTIES BROUGHT INTO THE SQUARE AND DID NOT DOUBT THAT HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE IN BEIJING WERE KILLED BY THE ARMY ON JUNE 3 AND 4."
